3 Striking and Stylish Mirrors To Brighten Up Your Minimalist Bathroom


If you have a small bathroom, then you may have opted for a pared-back, minimalist style to reduce clutter and keep the lines of the room clean. This is a practical and clever way to make sure your bathroom feels a spacious and light as possible. However, the minimalist look can feel a little bland, especially if you're a person who likes striking features in your decor.

A great way to add some design flair is to add a beautiful and decorative mirror to the room. A mirror is a must-have in a bathroom, so you're not adding a pretty ornament that doesn't serve a functional purpose. Because mirrors naturally increase the light in a room, having some fun with the design won't detract from the uncluttered feel. Here are three mirror styles that you might like to try in your bathroom.

1. Mirrored square border

This style of mirror features a normal rectangular centre panel. Instead of a regular frame, the mirror is bordered by small mirrored squares. The depth of the mirrored squares is varied, which gives the mirror a modern geometric look. The increased number of reflective facets of the mirror provide extra light plus an eye-catching visual effect.

2. Art Deco style

Opting for an Art Deco style bathroom mirror is a great way to add some understated decorative elegance to your home. Art Deco style mirrors are best known for their dazzling beveled edges and the geometric designs that are etched into the mirror's edges. Some Art Deco mirrors will also have an arched or fan-shaped edge along the top of the mirror.

3. Mosaic tile border

Adding a border of mosaic tiles to the edges of your standard bathroom mirror is a simple and inexpensive way to inject some style and colour into your bathroom. You can buy mirrors that are already tiled or you can do it yourself very easily with supplies from a mosaic or craft store. You can opt for a multi-coloured pattern or stick to one bright, bold hue for maximum impact.

Replacing a functional yet dull bathroom mirror with a stylish is the perfect way to add some designer flair and your unique taste into the room. It's a simple, inexpensive, yet highly effective way to give your small, minimalist bathroom a whole new look. Your local glass and mirror contractor can help you decide which style is best for you and organise the installation process.

Extending the patio

When we moved into the house we had a really cute patio, but it was so small that if more than two people wanted to share a meal or sit together there wasn't room. That's why I have been extending the patio and working on ways to make it more hospitable for the whole family to spend time out there, such as getting the music system to connect to some speakers in the structure. This blog has some tips for homeowners who are looking to attempt a patio renovation or extension and has some tips on which jobs to DIY and when to call in the professionals.
